A Celebrant helps plan and present personalized memorials, celebrations of life, and funeral services. Celebrants are facilitators, attentive and sensitive interviewers, creative writers, professional public speakers, loss and grief educators, and ceremonial leaders.

As a Certified Celebrant, Colleen’s mission and focus is to create and conduct a Celebration of Life service that best reflects the life wishes, beliefs and values – religious or non-denominational – of the deceased and their family. Colleen will consult with you to help design a service that best reflects and memorializes the life of your loved one. Colleen can serve at a funeral service, memorial service, graveside service, anniversary tribute, tree planting, bench dedication or any other gathering designed to honor the deceased.
